Mariposa at Ellwood Shores

We recently moved my 97 year old Dad from Florida, where he had been living alone. We had checked out several possible assisted living facilities but ended up selecting Mariposa at Ellwood Shores partially because the size of the place was not overwhelming and they allowed him to bring his dog. My Dad is now in memory care and I cannot say enough about the kindness and professionalism of the staff. As a bonus, the facility has been Covid-free and this has allowed the residents to have communal meals and also allowed for socially distanced (and masked) visits. The General Manager holds weekly Zoom meetings to update the families on issues and activities. We are convinced we made the best choice and have recommended Mariposa to others.

Highly Recommended

The entire experience has been terrific for my parents, and for me as I searched for the best community for my folks. The staff is professional, kind, and very caring, and the facility is wonderful - terrific apartment units and location near the Sandpiper Golf Course, excellent amenities (movie theater, dining room, fitness room, hair salon), and interesting activities to keep residents engaged (including a twice-weekly sight seeing bus tour around the Santa Barbara area). Even with the COVID-related restrictions, we’ve been able to visit my parents (following appropriate protocols), and we even arranged a picnic for my parents with their two grandchildren. My parents and I couldn’t be more pleased with Mariposa, and we feel very fortunate to have them at this wonderful facility.
